We are the leaders in buying, selling and leasing.

Progressive Property Management, Inc., was founded in 1990, and a short time later,  as a result of specific client requests, PPM Real Estate, Inc. was created, offering buying, selling and leasing services not typically performed by property management firms. Its continued and growing success is based on three principles: integrity, loyalty to clients, and continuing education. Our clients are our best reference. PPM has grown comfortably and without effort in sales and leasing as a directly propelled by our client base.

It’s the full service relationship that secures clients, and our well rounded knowledge of both the property management and selling side of the industry that gives us our edge. Searching, acquisition, management, maintenance, financial reporting and the selling of assets that our clients enjoy. Our clients are real estate investors who need to entrust their properties to a company who works for them, looks out for them, and becomes, in essence, their partner!

PPM’s reputation and excellent relationships with Lancaster City agencies and many of the county municipalities benefit all of PPM’s clients in growth, management, and development including planning, building and zoning concerns.


We’re a software company founded in the city of Lancaster, but residing in Elizabethtown for the past decade. We’re finally getting the chance to come back to Lancaster city and had the pleasure of working with this incredible team at PPM to locate and work through the rigors of property leasing, which included a complete build-out in our case. Corinn was incredibly attentive to the needs and desires of a tech company, and I’d highly recommend their services as Lancaster becomes an increasingly attractive location for businesses like ourselves.

Corinn and her team were incredibly helpful and empowering to me as we navigated a new commercial lease. She took the time to explain the language, share industry standards, and thoughtfully answer all of my questions. I feel so much more clear and confident after working with them. Thank you!!

I have worked with many agents over the years. Corinn and Tracy worked very hard for me and my company! They were always on top of things, and even ahead of the game in many cases. I trusted that they had my best interests at heart and it showed. I would recommend them for all of your commercial needs!

Our Competitive Edge

Local focus

One of PPM’s key strengths is our tight focus on the area we know best: Lancaster County. We are active in commercial leasing and sales management. To refine the focus even further, we generally restrict our real estate leasing and sales to Lancaster County. The simple reason is our familiarity with the locale, the types of enterprises it attracts, and the prevailing attitudes and sensibilities of its business community. PPM also enjoys being directly involved with local planning, including retail and business growth in our unique city. We pride ourselves on contributing to growth in small and large businesses alike in the downtown area.

Staying “tuned in”

Our other major benefit is a natural outgrowth of our local focus: we’re very much “tuned in” to the actual needs of our real estate clients, to the condition of buildings, and to the need for both preventive and corrective maintenance. This intangible, combined with our extensive background and sterling reputation in property management, has led to a considerable number of direct referrals. In fact, we’ve never advertised for new business. We’ve maintained a low-key, word-of-mouth approach to building PPM, one that allows us to select clients and properties carefully and develop high comfort levels in our working relationships.
